1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a 
third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A))

513(g) Request for Information

OMB Control Number 0910-0705--Extension

    Section 513(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the 
FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360c(g)) provides a means for obtaining the 
Agency's views about the classification and regulatory requirements 
that may be applicable to a particular device. Section 513(g) provides 
that, within 60 days of the receipt of a written request of any person 
for information respecting the class in which a device has been 
classified or the requirements applicable to a device under the FD&C 
Act, the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall provide such 
person a written statement of the classification (if any) of such 
device and the requirements of the FD&C Act applicable to the device.
    The guidance document entitled ``FDA and Industry Procedures for 
Section 513(g) Requests for Information Under the Federal Food, Drug, 
and Cosmetic Act; Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug 
Administration Staff'' establishes procedures for submitting, 
reviewing, and responding to requests for information respecting the 
class in which a device has been classified or the requirements 
applicable to a device under the FD&C Act that are submitted in 
accordance with section 513(g) of the FD&C Act. FDA does not review 
data related to substantial equivalence or safety and effectiveness in 
a 513(g) request for information. FDA's responses to 513(g) requests 
for information are not device classification decisions and do not 
constitute FDA clearance or approval for marketing. Classification 
decisions and clearance or approval for marketing require submissions 
under different sections of the FD&C Act.
    Additionally, the FD&C Act, as amended by the Food and Drug 
Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-85), requires FDA to 
collect user fees for 513(g) requests for information. The guidance 
document entitled ``Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug 
Administration Staff; User Fees for 513(g) Requests for Information'' 
assists FDA staff and regulated industry by describing the user fees 
associated with 513(g) requests. The Medical Device User Fee Cover 
Sheet (Form FDA 3601), which accompanies the supplemental material 
described in this information collection is approved under OMB control 
number 0910-0511 and expires August 31, 2019.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:
